On 6 December 2018, the Grade 11 CAS team organized a Christmas Bazaar (also known as Sembako) where we raised more than Rp.16,000,000 for two school-building projects in Kupang. The Christmas Bazaar has been conducted every year by the Grade 11s and its purpose is to provide the nine essential food items guaranteed by the government (Sembilan bahan pokok thus Sembako) at a lower price as a form of end-of-the-year gift for the staff. The Grade 11s are proud to say that this bazaar had been a success.
The success of this year’s bazaar was the product of more than a month of collecting items, listing prices and preparation. The Grade 11 CAS team worked together on the project,contributing in whatever ways possible. Some helped by offering to pack the donated items, others offered to help selling the items. In the end, it was all a collaborative effort amongst all stakeholders in the school, be it the students, teachers, staff and even parents who most graciously donated many food items for the bazaar.
We would like to thank all the parents and teachers who have helped us and gave us moral support for this project. We hope that the bazaar next year would be an even larger success.
